Film Review: Trip to the Moon by TRMsLiksa


  1. Hi Lisa,
    Well done on getting your first review out there!

    Just a quick reminder of what the brief is asking you to do -

    'In addition to and in support of your own critique, your reviews must include a minimum of 3 quotations from 3 different published sources + poster art + supporting stills.
    Please note - Harvard Method must be used for all quotations and all illustrations to be referenced correctly. Reviews are to include bibliography and illustration list.'

    You have included images to support your discussion, so well done there. You should make sure however, that you introduce them and refer to them in your discussion; so for example, when you are talking about the strange sea-creatures, you could say something like, 'as shown in figure 4'. The same goes for quotes; you should make sure that they are 'meaty' enough to support your discussion, and make sure that you 'unpick' them rather than just have them plonked in.
    There is a very specific way of referencing both quotes and images, so have a look at myUCA, in the myLibrary section, or here -

    My final comment refers to the way you address the filmmaker - when you first mention him, you are right to use his full name; after that however, you should just use his surname, so Méliès instead of Georges. Calling him by his first name sounds a bit over-friendly! :)

  2. PS...don't forget to give the post a title too!
